Welcome to Costa Rica! On the first day of your Unique Romantic Trip, one of our reps will meet you & greet you at the gate of the airport to proceed with your private transfer to Bajos del Toro, the ideal place to see all those natural wonders that make Costa Rica a famous touristic destination around the world, featuring gorgeous waterfalls & huge mountains covered with jungles. Your accommodation would be at El Silencio Lodge in a riverside suite with breakfast included, king size bed, private outdoor heated whirlpool, Wi-Fi, electric heaters & private deck with rocking chairs. The lodge also features a restaurant & nature trails with 3 beautiful waterfalls immersed in the jungle.
On this tour your guide will show you many aspects of our Cloud Forests; & will take you to observe 3 amazing waterfalls immersed in the jungle. This natural experience takes place in the grounds of the hotel, where you would walk for about an hour on a beautiful well-maintained trail next to the Gorrion River, until you reach the first waterfall called “Melodia”. Then you would walk a little further up to admire the “El Silencio” waterfall; & at the end you will see the really tall “La Promesa” waterfall, a 55 meters water drop (160 feet), in a very mystic setting, a place that you will definitely not forget about your journey in Costa Rica.
Around mid-morning your own private vehicle will pick you up to take you to the unique Rio Celeste area. The Rio Celeste area is well known because of its Blue River, a very special river that starts off as a regular clear water stream at the top of Tenorio Volcano, but about half way down the mountain it turns blue because of a chemical reaction with the minerals coming out of the ground. Your lodging would be at the Rio Celeste Hideaway Hotel in a casita forest with breakfast included (upgrades available); A/C, mini fridge, cable TV, bathroom with hot water, Jacuzzi, outdoor shower, safety box & coffee maker. This luxury hotel also features, restaurant, pool, bar, spa & rainforest nature trails.
On this tour to the Tenorio Volcano National Park we’ll take you to visit the famous Blue River, one of the most interesting natural wonders of the country. This is a hike that lasts for about 4 hours, in which we will show you the diverse flora & fauna of the rainforests of this particular area; but our favorite part of the trip is to show you the specific place where the river turns blue, known as “Los Tenideros”, which is due to a chemical reaction between the volcanic minerals & the water of the river. On this hike we’ll also take you to see the gorgeous blue waterfall, as well as the amazing blue lagoon, where you will be able to admire the contrast of the blue water & the lush-green rainforest surrounding it.
Around noon your own private vehicle will pick you up to take you to the beautiful & unexplored San Ramon region, a cloud forest area sort of like Monteverde but more intimate & with no crowds. Your lodging would be at the Villa Blanca Cloud Forest Hotel, in a honeymoon suite with breakfast included; fully stocked bar, ceiling fan, complimentary coffee, whirlpool bath, terrace, fireplace, Wi-Fi & living room. Villa Blanca is a unique accommodation that was built to imitate a 19th-century Costa Rican mountain village, with very well maintained gardens & surrounded by a cloud forest reserve. This hotel also features a restaurant, bar, nature trails, biological station, private theater, TV room & Spa.
Today’s transfer is very unique, because you would cross the beautiful Nicoya Gulf by boat on your way to the sunny Santa Teresa, one of the least explored coastal destinations of Costa Rica. We love this place because it still keeps that unique feeling of a small Costa Rican coastal town & because of its beautiful white sand beaches surrounded by nature. Your lodging would be at Flor Blanca Luxury Beachfront Resort (other hotels available); in a superior one-bedroom villa (upgrades available); king size bed, A/C in the bedroom, living area, hammock, Wi-Fi, stocked mini bar, safety box & plush bathrobes.
